A 19-year-old Manassas man has died as the result of injuries he suffered in a two-vehicle crash Friday afternoon in Fauquier County.

Brian Reconis, 19, of Manassas, was a passenger in a 2000 Ford F-450 truck traveling on Va. 612 in Midland a little after 1 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 20, when it veered off the right side of the road, overcorrected, crossed the center line and struck a 2013 Ford F-150 in the oncoming lane, according to Sgt. Brent Coffey with the Virginia State Police.

The Ford F-450 then ran off of the roadway on the right side, struck an embankment and overturned, Coffey said.

Reconis was ejected from the truck and died at the scene. He was not wearing a seat belt, Coffey said.

The driver of the Ford F-450, Brayan E. Moreira-Saravia, 19, of Brandywine, Maryland, suffered minor injuries in the crash. He was wearing a seat belt. 

The driver of the Ford F-150, a 31-year-old Virginia Beach man, was not injured in the crash. He was wearing a seat belt.  

Moreira-Saravia was charged with reckless driving, failure to maintain proper control, Coffey said.  

The crash remains under investigation.

Virginia State Police was assisted by the state police department's division 2 accident reconstruction team and the Virginia Department of Transportation.
